Claire's latest kids' science book, Out of the Ice: How Climate Change is Revealing the Past, published by Kids Can Press, is now on bookstore shelves -- real and virtual.
It's the story of the new science of glacial archaeology. Global warming is melting ice patches, glaciers, and permafrost around the world, revealing amazingly well-preserved reliques of the past. But the melt has a down side, even for archaeologists. Once organic artifacts and remains are thawed and exposed to the atmosphere, they deteriorate quickly. Glacial archaeology is a rescue mission, a rush to save vital information about the past before it disappears forever.
Look for Out of the Ice: How Climate Change is Revealing the Past at your local bookstore, on Amazon or Chapters Indigo or your favourite vendor.
